        an artists' co-operative gallery and exhibition space




Connections  March 16 - April 22, 2017

 Art in the Afternoon  Every third Saturday

 Tiny Art Show  May 11 - June 10.

Our History  Full Circle Arts, a co-operative of artists of all disciplines, was established in June, 2000, after receiving a mandate from the City of Hickory and the Catawba County Council for the Arts to form an artists’ co-operative in downtown Hickory, and opened its doors that September.

Our Goals  The goals of Full Circle Arts are to provide a space for visual artists (and eventually literary and performing artists) to promote and develop arts education, to develop the potential and professional ability of individual artists, to provide working shared studio space for members, and to raise the funds to meet these goals.  We have a gallery which displays the artwork of our exhibiting members and is occasionally used for other events.  There is also a classroom which is open for classes and workshops in various mediums.

Complete the Circle!
Become a member and be part of the fun.
